Hello Everyone,

Thanks for your suggestions for the January 9th vendor event before the MDL annual membership meeting.  We looked carefully at your suggestions and have put together the agenda below that focuses on eBooks and other selected topics of interest.  Due to space considerations and the short timeframe we couldn't include everyone at this event, but we have ideas for engaging them going forward and we'll say more about that on the 9th.  With your input and assessment, at the end of the day we will all have a better understanding of the products and the MDL group's objectives.

Please RSVP to clpsupport at lyrasis.org<mailto:clpsupport at lyrasis.org> to let us know if you or someone else from your institution will be attending.  Also tell us if you have any specific questions that you would like to be addressed by the presenting vendors.
